1st, changing the font of all components doesn't work yet.. I am trying 
to figure out how to change this, but it's something that needs a lot of 
thinking out, so I have no idea how long it will be.

2nd, GTK is GTK is GTK. not the WM. If the Font is too big, it is 
because the GTK theme or GTK Font Override value is too big. NOT because 
of the WM or desktop they are running. So basicaly, they need to change 
the font they are using for GTK, or they need to change the GTK theme or....
